Reading Olympics

“To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.” –Victor Hugo

 

Reading Olympics is a partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Midland. The mission of the Boys and Girls Club is to help young people, especially those identified as "at- risk," become productive, caring and responsible citizens.

This program helps children strengthen their reading and comprehension skills through books that discuss everyday issues and challenges. Our mentors read to these children after school and provide all participants with a new book each week that the children can take home and share with their families.
